Action-packed, full of suspense, surprise, and, of course, murder.
Why this play?
“It was about 18 months ago I came across James Cawood’s Death Knell. I was looking for a play to direct for this season. It was the fourth script I’d had to read. The previous three were fairly uninspiring and I’d decided if Death Knell didn’t spark any interest I’d give up.”
“I took the script to bed thinking I’d read a few pages to give me an idea of the style – see if it captured my imagination. I read the entire play – start to finish. I could NOT put it down. The plot leads you in one direction; you get comfortable with where you think it’s going and then wham it heads off on a completely different path. It does this constantly – even up to the final pages. It really does takes your breath away.”
At the head of a loch in the remote Highlands of Scotland sits playwright Henry Roth who has been inspired to write another “seismic hit”. And he has one particular actor in mind for the lead. Invited to Henry’s Highland home, charismatic (but unknown) Jack Willoughby has been tasked by Henry to bring with him the essential props of a murderer. The arrival of DCI Lazan from the Metropolitan Police – on the hunt of a serial killer – adds a deadly dynamic. Not everyone’s motives are quite what they first seem.
James Cawood’s Death Knell is a modern thriller. Action-packed, full of suspense and surprise, and, of course, murder.
